Gulls reach Gills settlement
Priestfield
Brighton played at Priestfield for two seasons
Brighton and Hove Albion have reached an out-of-court settlement with Gillingham following a financial dispute with their former landlords.

The dispute related to the ground-share agreement inherited by Seagulls' chairman Dick Knight when he took over the club.

Brighton chief executive Martin Perry said:

"It was to do with the hire of the ground. There was a figure in an invoice which we felt was not correct.

"We decided the right thing to do was to settle it before it went to court."

Brighton played home matches at Gillingham's Priestfield stadium for two seasons before moving back to Sussex to play at Withdean in August 1999.
